I am a self learning Arabic student and have been studying for about a year and a half now. I have been through all the major series (madina/arabic tutor etc) and books and made extensive notes. As part of my revision and consolidation, I had hoped to compile all my notes into one document with many rules and examples, I have decided to use the work tasheel al nahw as a base and to expand it with much more detail and examples. My only issue is that I have been unable to convert the pdf file into an editable text. I have tried about a dozen pdf to word/text sites and programs but to no avail. The best result I got was that the english was fine but the arabic becomes written backwards, and im unable to undo the process. I also emailed the editor of the work but he didnt provide me with anything (Allah reward them for their work). I hope to make my finished work available to all (may be others can add to it as well) and I may also write a preface/article of some sorts, outlining some advice to self studying students, I know there are many of us out there and Im sure those reading this can appreciate this, when I say I wasted months and months because of no guidance . If any one can help me with my problem ill be greatly appreciative.
